Mata Sahib Kaur Ji Awards : To Celebrate The Kaurs In Our Lives

Since the time of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, women have made a huge contribution to Sikh society. Then in 1699 they were given the honour of being bestowed with the beautiful title of Kaur by Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

Kaurs are core to the Sikh community; for centuries Kaurs have given, sacrificed, made change and created betterment for all those around them. We want to celebrate Kaurs.

In celebration of Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Gobind Singh’s upcoming Gurpurab, Nihal Nihal Nihal Productions introduce the Mata Sahib Kaur Ji Awards; to celebrate the Kaurs in our lives.

In 2018, Nihal Nihal Nihal Productions announced the first animated movie as Motherhood: The Journey of Mata Sahib Kaur which is coming soon; an untold story of an incredible, powerful female leader. We believe by highlighting the unique story of Mata Sahib Kaur Ji, many around the world have wanted to learn about the spiritual Mother of Sikhs and have empowered themselves in their daily lives. Let’s celebrate this great success and keep spreading the movement of female empowerment.

Every Kaur Should Be Celebrated

All Kaurs should be celebrated. ‘Why call her bad, from her Kings are born’

This is your chance to nominate a Kaur you believe deserves to be recognised and celebrated for the impact they have on others. It could be an Olympic medalist or an Olympian in people’s hearts due to her amazing voluntary work, her making a change in society, her strength in triumphing over obstacles. It could be the Kaur who is quietly making a difference.

There are 13 categories for Kaurs to be nominated in. Imagine highlighting 13 Kaurs for the world to be inspired by. Imagine the dreams and hearts of little girls glowing as they now know they can reach for the stars with such amazing Kaur role models introduced to the world. 

Nominations open on 31 March 2022 and close on 15th August 2022.

The awards ceremony will be on 15th September 2022
